Henry Coleman works around the spaces of designed experience, bumping up against architecture, typography, signage and the decorative; reframing and making obvious the established edges of the aesthetic conditions that shape and reflect the societies and images that we move through. Drawing down on the historical material of social and visual momentum to illuminate contemporary processes, the work is expressed through disparate forms and channels; large scale sculptural intervention, interviews, objects and print; pulling disparate elements together in a meeting of place and image, history and information, sensation and knowledge to generate a disruptive and cohesive sculptural and conceptual body.

This short residency will be used to extend and finalise research for a project with Turner’s House Trust which is set to launch in the spring, looking at how coloured light forms perception and emotional response.
